The purpose of the Curriculum Library is to serve the needs of the students and faculty of the Division of Education and to provide resources for current and prospective teachers. In addition to supporting UMM’s teacher education program, community educators and children are also invited to use Curriculum Library materials.
Located on the third floor of Briggs Library, the Curriculum Library consists of several distinct collections.
- The Children’s Literature Collection (Juvenile Collection) is made up of easy/picture books, reference, fiction and nonfiction sections written for children and young adults. The Children’s Literature Collection is cataloged and arranged according to the Dewey Decimal Classification. The loan period for children’s collection items is 14 days.
- The Teacher Education Collection consists of elementary textbooks, secondary textbooks, teaching aids and kits. The materials in these sections are arranged by curricular area and further subdivided by publisher or producer. Due to the high demand at various times of each term, the loan period for teacher education items is three days. Print journals of particular interest to K–12 teachers are also shelved in the teacher education area.
